Describe your environment

  • Operating System version: Windows 10
  • Browser version: Chrome 79
  • Firebase SDK version: 7.8.1
  • Firebase Product: database

Describe the problem

Using add on a CollectionReference built with withConverter throws an error when passing a custom class instance :
"[native Error Function CollectionReference.add() requires its first argument to be of type object, but it was: a custom Strategy object]"

The converter is only called if I pass a plain object, which seems to defeat the purpose of using a converter, unless I'm misunderstanding how this is supposed to work entirely

I'm encountering this in my Vue app and was able to reproduce it on CodeSandbox, link below

This seems similar to #2601
